It takes about one second or less on my system (VirtualBox VM running on 
AMD Turion from 2009), so I was expecting a much better performance on 
other systems. I'll add a "wait..." legend.

There's code in the form constructor to set the Status column to 
"ResizetoContents", and the other column to stretch. It works well here 
(tested on XFCE, not KDE), I'll have to investigate what could be 
causing it on your system (maybe a different build of Qt?).

Yes, that needs work.

Good to know.

Thanks for the feedback.
